Beet soup and beet greens

To Xhyacinth who wanted a recipe for beets and beet greens:

                                 SIMPLE BEET SOUP

Can be served hot or cold

Peel and coarsely chop:
1     large         beet
1                       carrot
1     medium   onion
Place vegetables in pot with:
3    cups         water
3                     vegetable bouillon cubes
2    tsp            wine vinegar
1/8 tsp           ground cloves
1/8 tsp           dill weed
1                      bay leaf
1/4 tsp           sugar
After cooking add:
juice of 1/2 lemon
fat free sour cream for garnish


Cover and cook 30 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Remove bay leaf
and puree in blender.  Add lemon juice.

Place soup in bowls. Garnish each serving with sour cream

Serves 4 as a first course. (Has a gorgeous red color)

I cook beet greens like spinach. Select bright green leaves. Tear off the
tough leaf stem. Steam for 2-3 minutes.
